The vishuddha or throat chakra is the fifth of the seven main chakras, located at the base of the throat area. It governs self-expression, communication, and the ability to speak one's truth.
ORIGINS OF THE vishuddha CHAKRA
The Chakra system originated in India between 1500 and 500 BCE. It was first mentioned in the ancient text called the Vedas, which introduces the seven primary chakras.
In Sanskrit, the throat chakra is called the vishuddha chakra. Shuddhi translates as "pure," and vi strengthens the word; therefore, vishuddha means especially pure. The throat chakra comes after the root chakra, sacral chakra, solar plexus chakra, and heart chakra, followed by third eye and crown chakra. Altogether, this creates the body's chakra energy system.
Chakra is defined as a spinning wheel of energy that runs up the spine to the top of the head. Concepts of the seven chakras came to the western world in the 1880s from tantric yoga traditions and are increasingly studied and practiced due to the extensive benefits.

The fifth chakra plays an essential role in the chakra system. A balanced throat chakra helps with internal communication, verbal communication, and creative ideas. Through the throat chakra, people can become more accepting of their lived experiences and embrace their originality.
Lifeforce energy lies dormant at the base of the spine until it is awakened through wellness practices, including meditation, asanas, pranayama, and prayer. Individuals often experience a heightened clarity of expression in their inner voice as the throat chakra opens, supporting their ability to communicate confidently and be their authentic selves.
A blocked throat chakra can negatively impact health in the physical body and mental state. Some of the potential symptoms include:
🏵Fear of speaking personal truthv
🏵Anxiety about communicating or speaking
🏵Difficulty expressing thoughts
